And what about the final rules authorizing IBOC? (See story above.) On the technical issues, the agency seems to have found common ground, but there is a sticking point. Adelstein believes that while HD Radio is a great new technology that revitalizes service to localities, the multicasting channels raise questions of what public service obligations to impose on those new channels.
Abernathy, on the other hand, sees this as a new technology, and other than imposing basic service obligations on the service, is “inclined to see where this goes.”
Both said they are working to find common ground on the issue and hope to resolve differences soon.
